Goodreads/Library Thing

About the Book: He’s handsome, reliable, and punctual—the perfect gentleman when you want him to be. But this dream man is Death’s best agent—and now he’s got more than his soul to lose…

One act of mercy before dying was all it took to turn soldier David Anderson into a reaper—an immortal who guides souls-of-untimely-death into the afterlife. But the closer he gets to atoning for his mortal sin and finally escaping merciless Fate, the more he feels his own humanity slipping away for good. Until he encounters Sarah Griffith. This skeptical scientist can’t be influenced by his powers—even though she has an unsuspected talent for sensing the dead. And her honesty and irreverent sense of humor reignite his reason for living—and a passion he can’t afford to feel. Now Fate has summoned David to make a devastating last harvest. And he’ll break every hellishly-strict netherworld rule to save Sarah…and gamble on a choice even an immortal can’t win

First Thoughts When Finished: What a great premise for a series and a solid story to start it rolling!

Story Thoughts: Grim Reapers are starting to become some of my favorite paranormal characters. They are sexy, mysterious, and there are tons of stories that you can create around their jobs. Grave Intentions was a solid story about one particular grim reaper and his job. I felt that the pacing of the story was really good and that the story kept me interested from beginning to end. I really think there is a lot of ways Lori can go in the series and I can’t wait to see what she does.

Character Thoughts: I loved Lori’s characters. I thought they were strong, capable, and intriguing. Can I say how much I loved that Lori let Sarah see David at his job and that she accepted it. I always love when a character accepts what they see with their own eyes. The questions after are always more fun and intriguing. Sarah and David were a great couple and I loved meeting the other Reapers. I am curious as to what is so special about the newbie but I think we are going to have to wait a few books for that!

Final Thoughts: I will be continuing this series and can’t wait for the next one!

  1. I agree I am really loving Grim Reaper books and holy cow this has a sexy cover. I am looking for some fun new UF/Paranormal reads and this just might be one I have to check out!

  2. You turned me on to my first Grim Reaper book (First Grave on the Right) and I loved it. Looks like I have another series to add to my TBR 🙂

  3. I love when a heroine sees something unbelievable about their hero (and vice versa) and simply accepts it without too much drama or fuss, so I’m thinking I’ll like Sarah and David quite a bit. I’m with you on grim reapers too, they’re quickly becoming one of my favorite paranormal entities! MORE PLEASE!

    • Oh you will like them and her grandmother! I am really excited about the next book which is a female reaper. I think it will be better than this one 🙂

  4. Im going to pass on the book, but can I get one of those ripped cover models, minus the sword thing with chocolate instead???

  5. That cover promises a lot. I was thinking the same thing…Grim Reapers Rock. Scientist meets Grim Reaper. Interesting mix.
